Eminem had the highest album sales than any other artist in the year 2018, making him the biggest rapper at the moment.
According to the stats revealed in BuzzAngle Music’s end of year report for 2018, Eminem outsold every single artist in the world in the last year.
That’s a staggering 755,027 album sales. Though the 45-year-old’s album Kamikaze – which finished as the fourth biggest selling album of the year anyway accounts for only half of his total sales in 2018.
Kamikaze, which earned 373,067 sales was only behind The Greatest Showman soundtrack, A Star Is Born soundtrack and Justin Timberlake’s Man of the Woods.
His last nine albums have debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, and two of them—The Marshall Mathers LP and The Eminem Show—have been certified diamond by the RIAA.
In total, Em racked up more than 2.5 billion streams throughout last year. Of that amount, 760 million were for his new album.
On top of that, he broke records on YouTube with his diss track of the aforementioned Machine Gun Kelly, entitled ‘Kill Shot’.
It quickly became the largest debut of any hip-hop track to be uploaded to the site. Again, not bad.
All in all, not a bad year for Eminem, proving that more than 20 years since his debut album, his fans are still loyal and he is still on top of his game.
